Why Crucial Decisions Can't Be Made in the Blink of An Eye

Book - 2006
Average Rating:
Rate this:
Outraged by the downward spiral of American intellect and culture, this text offers the flip side to the theory that our best decision-making is done on impulse. If bestselling books are advising us not to think, the author argues, it comes as no surprise that sharp, incisive reasoning has become a lost art.

This book is nothing new other than a counter to Gladwell's book, 'Blink.' Th!nk started off interesting, but after a few chapters -- especially those of us who are aware of biases -- start to realize that Legault is stuck in the ad hominem fallacy of attacking Gladwell and the science behind the subconscious mind.

I am an advocate for critical thinking, but the conscious and subconscious mind work together and also conflict with each other. Most of us are not even aware of how much our subconscious is in control. Legault's arguments adduces anecdotes that simply falls flat and equates to nothing more than subjective opinion. Readers should be wary of his presumptuous tone.
